The Curse of Oak Island follows Marty Lagina and Rick Lagina, originally from Kingsford, Michigan, through their effort to find the speculated, and as yet undiscovered - buried treasure, believed to have been concealed through extraordinary means on Oak Island. This island is located on the south shore of Nova Scotia, Canada.
Will the coming TV-serie reveal any big discovery based on their search? A new inscribed stone, a gold treasure, a shipwreck, and will the eventually discovery support the Norwegian Peter Amundsen`s amazing theory:
- In the 4th and last part of the documentary on NRK television - Norwegian Broadcasting - 29th December 2009 called Sweet Swan of Avon - The Shakespeare Treasure, the Norwegian code cracker Petter Amundsen launched an amazing theory: the New Temple of God is hidden underground on Oak Island, Novia Scotia, in Canada. In this temple Shakespeare`s manuscripts are also stored.
Read about several theories about the mystery on Oak Island on Travel Explorations: Who has right about the Oak Island mystery?
Petter Amundsen introduced his theories in his book Oak Island & the Treasure Map in Shakespeare (2012) and later in a documentary titled Shakespeare: The Hidden Truth (Shakespeares skjulte sannhet). Amundsen has scrutinized the first editions of Shakespeare's works, and claims to have discovered an intricate code system hidden in the books. He furthermore insists on that these codes prove that Shakespeare was in fact not the writer we know today, but a name a secret brotherhood chose to hide behind. Amundsen's theories have been rejected by several Shakespeare experts, but no one has rejected them as fiercely as Robert Crumpton. Crumpton is determined to prove Amundsen's theories wrong, and Amundsen has decided to convince Crumpton of the opposite.
The series premiered in the United States on the History Channel on 9th January 2014. The show documents the efforts and financial outlays of two brothers from Michigan in their attempt to use modern technology to discover unknown treasure or historical artifacts, believed to perhaps be buried at Oak Island.
